It runs on ibis Wise. Just before or daring the late riots in new York or. Wood made one of his characteristic speeches which evidently added in inciting the disorder that disgraced that City and stained it with lae blood of Many an innocent victim. The reasonable speech was fully reported at Headquarters at Washington where upon Fernando received a dispatch stating that his presence was desired at the Federal Metropolis. He went there at once and was met by a tall somewhat rough but honest Man who has extensive practice in Western courts by whom Kob taken to a private mom.

In Manv cases the murderers drove men into Bouses shot them Down and then burned the buildings Over their beads. It is de that Many of the wounded perished in the fames. Every hotel in the City was burned with the exception of one which Quintrell spared for the whimsical reason that several years ago be boarded there without pillage was perhaps the primary object of these bandits. The moment they were certain that the citizens could offer no resistance they began to plunder the dying and the dead and to carry off everything of value they could snatch from the flames. They stole the jewelry from the ladies even taking the from their fingers. Twp of the three City Banks were robbed to the last dollars the third escaped because Ibe intense beat of the burning build rings pre vented the robbers from remaining Long enough to Force open the safes.

If they will look at the of officers nominated they will find that four oat of Sis of their nominees Are residents of trough that s dabbing it on rather for the aka of the vote of one the North Ca Bousa Are indebted to capt h. Rogers of the 58th regt p. A for a copy of the Standard of a recent Date. This paper Baa one of the largest circulations of any paper printed in Necessia and is the Lead ing paper of the old North state. It has created considerable sensation lately on account of its opposition to the Davis dynasty. We shall extract some from it next week. I md., Herald and Torch Light. The Union connection of Pennsylvania which was held at Pittsburg has by vote of Ninete Kirbt to thirty six renominated Hon. Andrew g. Curtin for governor. Judge Woodward is his democratic or Copperhead opponent and the contest Between them bids fair to be a close Only however because the fifty or seventy five thousand soldiers from the state who Are engaged in Fig Tinz the Battle of their coun try will not be permitted to vote. Could they have an Opportunity of recording their ballots there would be Little or no doubt about the result for As governor Curtin nobly stood by them at All times and under All circumstances it is but fair to pre sume that without distinction of party they would cheerfully and gratefully sustain him. But we shall not be Ieva that even though he should be deprived of the sol Diers support important and decisive of the election As it would be he can be Over come by the numerous Snake species of Dis loyalists opposed to him. Party prejudices May be aroused against Bira and political malice May and doubtless will do its wore to encompass Bis defeat but we shall no believe that the hearts of the people of Penn Svlvio a can be alienated from so Able and faithful a Public servant until the ballot boxes speak Ibe Damnable act of in gratitude in inn Junge which cannot be mis understood. The adder stung to Brawt which warmed it into life but Blacker would to the ingratitude of the Keystone if they should strike Down or turn their backs upon Curtin who has undoubtedly rendered them inestimable ser vices in these perilous times.
